Favorite thing: The old Moorish built Castle or CASTILLOwas constructed during the 9th and 10th century. The Muslim Gate dates from the 11th century ( Puerto Musulmana S. XI ) . Reformed during the 19th century ( Reformos S. XIX ).
The Town Walls or RECINTO AMULLARADO surround the oldest part of Vejer and were built during the 10th and 12th century by the Moors as part of its defence to protect the town against the Christian reconquest of the region.
The Safe Gate or PUERTA DE LA SEGUR ( pictured here ) is one of the archways located in the Walls. It was restored by Lord Enrique, Duke of Guzman in the 15th century after the Christians recaptured the town from the Moors.
